Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop grand opening is Friday, February 28

TOWER — With always fresh coffee and baked goods so irresistible — it’s no wonder people are clamoring to get their fix of Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop.

“Things have been going extremely well,” said Deb Pinski just days before the official grand opening of Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop at Fortune Bay Resort Casino. “Our customers are thrilled to be able to get such a well known brand right here in northeastern Minnesota.”

While the business has been operational for nearly a month, officials wanted to make sure the staff was ready to go forward with the grand opening, which is slated for Friday, February 28 from 6 a.m. until 8 p.m.

Customers who make a beverage purchase will get one free spin at the prize wheel to win a Tim Hortons baked good or beverage. Customers who sign up for the Tim Hortons drawing will be eligible to win a one night stay in a premium king suite, dinner for two in the Sunset Steakhouse and $25 Fortune Play.

“We are thrilled to have joined forces with the Tim Hortons franchise,” said Gary Gotchnik CEO at Fortune Bay Resort Casino. “We’re always looking for ways to add amenities to our property and we feel that this was a great way to do just that.”

Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop is located on the main floor at Fortune Bay Resort Casino. It is open seven days a week from 6 a.m. until 8 p.m.

There are a wide variety of hot and cold beverages and several dozen varieties of fresh baked donuts, cookies, muffins and other goodies.
